Daddy, when I first entered this world on May 14, 2009 at 12:50 am, it was ALL ABOUT US
When my loving mommy was texting you from her hospital bed on my birthday as you traveled to get on the USS Ponce about 7 hrs later, it was still ALL ABOUT US
On my 2 nd day in the hospital, Daddy, Mommy was telling me how much I reminded her of you that made me smile….still it was ALL ABOUT US
On my 3 rd day, when I was leaving Naval Hospital, Camp Lejeune to go home in the stroller you assembled before departing for deployment, Daddy, again it was ALL ABOUT US
On my 5 th & 6 th day, Daddy, when you put a smile on my 1 st time Uncle Kaoss’ face and had my Nana humming your song to put me to sleep at Olive Garden Res’t with Mommy, it was ALL ABOUT US
As Nana was letting me hear you sing on day 7 and Mommy gave me a kiss from you, Daddy, on day 8, you know it was ALL ABOUT US
On day 9, Pop-Pop said he will be here to guide me ‘til you return, Daddy, and day 10 Nana made me laugh talkin’ ‘bout you and mommy….. yes, it was ALL ABOUT US
Thinking of you (Day 11) while swinging in my rocker that you put together before leaving; Mommy was telling me how much I looked like you (Day 12); and while napping, I wished you were here, Daddy (Day 13)…. it was ALL ABOUT US
Mommy was telling me how you both first met on day 15 and Nana caught me napping in a pose just like you on day 16. Yep, Daddy…it’s still ALL ABOUT US

Daddy, wondering what you were doing on day 19, and then you called me and mommy on day 20. Mommy kissed me after you told her to in your Email at 3 weeks old…..Yes, it truly is ALL ABOUT US
On day 22 and 23 days old, Daddy, I knew God blessed me with wonderful, loving parents, who I know will be there for me to raise me up to be a fine young man…that’s what I see in our future… It’s ALL ABOUT US
And when Grandma Sharon came for a surprise visit from Chesapeake, VA when I was 24 days old, Daddy…yep, it was ALL ABOUT US
Just chillin’ on day 25 and on day 26, I decided that I wanted to dress in Marine Corps colors so I could be like you, Daddy! Cuz you know it’s ALL ABOUT US
Mommy giving me plenty of kisses from you and her on day 27 and I’m looking dapper in my 4-week old picture before we head out for a day on the town. I’m representin’ you, Daddy cuz it’s ALL ABOUT US
